On Sunday 5 May midwives across the world will be celebrating International Day of the Midwife 2024This year's' theme is at the core of COP28 and strategies to improve the health and status of women. Midwives, as care providers and defenders of women’s sexual and reproductive health are key players in designing resilient health systems capable of withstanding the worst impacts of climate change, delivering environmentally sustainable health services, and empowering women to make decisions that benefit themselves, their families and the planet. Midwives are climate activists. We hope that midwives, maternity support workers and student midwives across the globe celebrate in unison.

Midwifery associations call for policies that include midwives in climate action planning, invest in sustainable midwife-led care models, and take broader actions to cut carbon emissions and adopt green technologies. For further inspiration take a look at the UN 17 sustainable development goals.

The Royal College of Midwives will be sharing as much as they can to spread the empowering solidarity of midwives across the nation.
